Faculty Development Fridays

Faculty Development Fridays website banner

Join OHSU colleagues every other Friday for a series of professional education opportunities, including live-streamed presentations, virtual workshops, and facilitated discussions of webinars.

Jointly presented with the Office of Educational Improvement and Innovation.

All events are open to learners, postdocs, staff, and faculty.

Upcoming sessions

Lunch with Leaders will be a recurring series within our Faculty Development Fridays programming, during which you will be able to hear from and speak directly with OHSU leaders from across the institution. The goal of these conversations is for you to learn about the many diverse pathways to leadership that our institutional leaders have taken throughout their careers, and some of the challenges and opportunities faced as a result of those unique journeys.

The first two speakers for this series will be:

  • Susan Bakewell-Sachs, Ph.D., R.N., Dean, School of Nursing
  • Atif Zaman, M.D., M.P.H, Senior Associate Dean for Clinical and Faculty Affairs, School of Medicine

Presentations and discussion from noon - 1:00 p.m.

Join OHSU colleagues for a viewing and discussion around the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity webinar, The Art of Saying No, which will help you to create a plan for sorting out when to say no to requests that may affect your productivity. This session will be facilitated by Lissi Hansen, Ph.D., R.N., Professor in the School of Nursing.
